About the Course

Statistical inference is the process of drawing conclusions about populations or scientific truths from data. There are many modes of performing inference including statistical modeling, data oriented strategies and explicit use of designs and randomization in analyses. Furthermore, there are broad theories (frequentists, Bayesian, likelihood, design based, …) and numerous complexities (missing data, observed and unobserved confounding, biases) for performing inference. A practitioner can often be left in a debilitating maze of techniques, philosophies and nuance. This course presents the fundamentals of inference in a practical approach for getting things done. After taking this course, students will understand the broad directions of statistical inference and use this information for making informed choices in analyzing data....

Course is compressed with lots of statistical concepts. Which is very good as most must know concepts are imparted. Lots of extra reading is required to gain all insights. Very good motivating start .

To be honest, I like the subject but found the course material and content not very well structured. I missed more mathematical foundation.

Brian Caffo is explaining the Statistical Inference methodically, but he could work on making the lectures less tiresome and monotonous.

Not really a logical path to follow. Too much topics for me. I really needed more examples with code.

Thanks a lot for the lessons!

The amount of materials is more than course period. You may need to study a couple of other resources to understand the course.

The subject is interesting, but the explanations are a little confusing. May need more diverse real-life examples to relate.

it gives an idea of how one is prepared to ingress to Data Science. I

see that I need to review it more carefully later on.

Weeks 3 and 4 should have been split into 2 extra weeks to explain the concepts deeper and also have more exercises

Concepts are not well explained and slides are not well prepared. Last few topics are too brief to be useful.

3 stars because a total beginner would not have been able to follow these lessons without a lot of rewinding.

Materials need to be updated - there are way too many inconsistencies between videos, exercises, and slides.

Too much concepts to learn and practice. Course material can be little more engaging and split accordingly.

Very difficult lectures. You need a solid statistical background to keep up with the pace of the professor.

The ideas and concepts explained here are really important but are explained/written in a bit messy manner.

It's very important and very helpful, but it needs to be of more time/low speed to be perfectly absorbed.

Too bad it all starts from mathematical theorey; I would prefer a problem based approach.

These are complex topics, and just the quick overview doesn't fully explain them.

Not one a statistics newbie should take, had to take it twice just to grasp 80%

Content runs a bit fast but good course for stat inference with R focus.

The materials are not so clear to someone who's not familiar with stat.
